The finals of the 2020 edition, suspended due to the pandemic, and the 2021 edition will be played during this event with the 125 players aged 9 to 12, winners of the national preliminary rounds.
After more than 250 tournaments in 13 countries including Austria, Belarus, Bulgaria, Croatia, France, Hungary, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Poland, Romania and Ukraine, with more than 20,000 young tennis players involved, the Kinder Joy of moving Tennis Trophy celebrates its conclusion.
The winners of the national preliminary rounds of the Kinder Joy of moving Tennis Trophy will experience four days of play, fun and socialization, giving their best on the courts, testing their fairness and integrity, and putting into practice the Fair Play code, whose respect is at the foundation of the whole tournament.
The program also includes extra sporting moments such as the visit to the MUSEUM Xperience inside the Academy and the tour of the Caves of Drach in the east coast of Mallorca. At the end of the Master, the Fair Play Trophy will be awarded to the young tennis player and coach who will most distinguish themselves for honesty and sportsmanship.
The claim of this edition was "More than a trophy": the absence of umpires, the attention to fair play, the focus on friendship and relationship, the participation of parents as active players and the many opportunities for fun, on and off the tennis court, are the unique features that makes the Kinder Joy of moving Tennis Trophy much more than a sporting event.
The tournament was invented in Italy in 2006 by the former tennis player Rita Grande in collaboration with Kinder Joy of moving: it has grown over the years helping to promote an active lifestyle among younger generations also at an international level. It represents one of the main initiatives supported by Kinder Joy of moving, because it fully reflects its mission and philosophy, through the promotion of movement as personal and relational growth.
